Representatives from the 13 colonies meet in the blistering heat of Philadelphia in the summer of 1776. They must decide whether or not to declare independence from England. If they decide "yes", they are forcing a war with England on George Washington and his unprepared troops. You will feel like you are there, listening to their opposing opinions--to declare or not to declare!--and other less weighty matters as well, such as whether or not alcohol should be allowed while the Congress is in session.This musical production brings out the humanity and amusing foibles of these forefathers--as you watch them talk, sing, and even dance. (Who would have guessed!) The play was first produced on Broadway in 1969 and won three Tony awards: for Best Musical, Best Director, and Best Featured Actor.
